Old and unrelated images are being shared online in an attempt to highlight food supply shortages in parts of Ethiopia’s Amhara region.

The images are being used to call for aid to people in the Wollo area of the Amhara region.

It’s been affected by fighting between the Tigray People’s Liberation Front rebels, who crossed in to Amhara from the north, and regional and federal government forces.

Some online users are portraying the area as more deserving of aid than areas in Tigray.

However some of the images are from different times or places, and unrelated to the current situation.

One image in a widely-shared tweet is from Mogadishu, Somalia and was taken a decade ago, while another is actually from Tigray.

Another example we saw is also from more than a decade ago and from the Somali speaking region of Ethiopia, not from the Amhara region.

The UN has said that the food supply situation in the Amhara region has been affected by fighting.

According to UN report on 2 September, there’s an estimated 1.7 million people facing food insecurity in both the Amhara and Afar regions, but they also say 5.2 million are in need in Tigray.
